THE FIRST BLUSH OF FALL



The trees are finally beginning to don their Fall colors.
I love the bursts of red, yellow and rust among the still green leaves.
As always, enlarging the picture will give you more detail.

Lovely color and detail. Our Autumn colors are all but gone by, most of the leaves are on the ground. I look forward to seeing more of your Fall.

Our fall is well established now with lots of bare trees but we are having nice weather.

Yep, we actually DO get a bit of fall color out here in the west, don't we... I was snapping some leaves like that just this afternoon...

How pretty Sue! Our foliage season is past now with nearly all of the leaves on the ground and I already miss them :(

It's nature's way to let us know times are a changing. Nice photo by the way.

The enlarged photo is magnificent! Such detail, and "blush" is the perfect adjective for this capture.

Beautiful.....ours have all dropped now! A little burst of early snow fall expedited the leaf falling this year! Hopefully that is not a sign of a hard winter to come! :O
